Hello all,
I've found a solution that's work well for me to enhance my grip on the bar and increase the retention of finger picks.

It's called "Dry Hands" made by Nelson Sports. It's available on Amazon.

Here's how I use it. Pinch your bar hand thumb against the side of your palm. Put a few drops of the solution in the valley you create. Then, rub it around for a few seconds with your picking fingers. It'll dry in 4 or 5 seconds.

It may leave a slight chalky look where you apply it. But, it washes off easily.

Try it and you'll see how much it improves your open string playing where you have to pick up the bar.

yeah. spit's great.

Unfortunately, my last name on my mother's side ends in a vowel and my hands are too greasy.

I just needed an extra assist Smile
